Biography My name is Candice Flatt. I have been an Adair County resident all of my life. I have taught school for twenty years, six of those years, I have served as the district's gifted coordinator. I love teaching gifted and talented students. They are challenging and fun. The gifted and talented position has been an exciting path for me! I look forward to this year!
Introducing a new way to deliver gifted professional development at the Adair County School District. Each Monday, a different topic regarding gifted and talented students will be shared. Information will be pithy, practical, and printable. Click on the image to view information. You will know when the topic is available to view if there is a website link posted under a specific date. Feel free to request specific information earlier than scheduled by emailing email@example.com.
We do many projects throughout the year based on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). The students will do things, such as building a shelter for pilgrims that can withstand snow, rain, and wind. They will also build and measure bridges with q-tips, craft sticks, pipe cleaners, tape, and other materials. They will measure the bridge for certain height, length, and weight requirements. Students will build the world with clay, and identify all the layers of the layers of the Earth and their purpose. Another exciting activity students will participate in is called, "Mystery Detectives." In this activity they will have to solve crimes based on the clues they are given. These activities and many more will be introduced this year.
